NOvA is a 14 KTon long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment currently being installed in the NUMI off-axis neutrino beam produced at Fermilab. A 222 Ton prototype NOvA detector (NDOS) was built and operated in the neutrino beam for over a year to understand the the response of the detector and its construction. Muon neutrino interaction data collected in this test are being analyzed to identify quasi-elastic charge-current interactions and measure the behavior of the Quasi-elastic muon neutrino cross section. The status of these quasi-elastic studies in NDOS will be shown.
